Headlines: 2014 BMW 3-series GT Spy Price, Spec, Review and Photos . Now BMW is taking the idea one segment down-market—and, thankfully, taking a cue from Audi on styling direction. The 3-series Gran Turismo spotted by our spy photographers looks little like its big brother, being closer in size and proportion to the A5 Sportback. Although the camouflage exaggerates the height of the rear end, notice the notch in the camo indicating the location of a small spoiler above the taillights. The roofline is low and sleek, and the bulging hood adds tension to the body.

Like the other 3-series body styles, the GT will have standard rear-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive. A clever mix of materials should keep weight from rising too much, but it remains to be seen whether or not BMW can emulate Audi's success in slashing hundreds of pounds from its next-generation vehicles. BMW’s work with carbon fiber will first benefit its upcoming electric cars, whose other expensive technologies and low sales goals make the cost of the material more palatable.
